Ways to practise your spellings 14.5.20

Below are a few great way to practise spellings at home.

Year 1 and 2 Common Exception Words- 13.5.20

By the end of the year your child should be able to spell and read all of these words correctly. I will add some fun ways to practice the spellings.

Your new version of 'The Smartest Giant in Town'

Now it is your turn to write your own story, using the story you already know follow the instructions below. I will also write my own and upload it once it is finished!


- First, draw a new story map but change the character,clothes, setting or all 3. Let your child decide; it is their story.

- Give your child time to practise it at home using actions. make sure they know it off by heart.

- Finally, write the story. In school this process would take around a week so don't feel you have to do it in a day :) 


I cant wait to hear your stories!

The Smartest Giant in Town

Hello Willow Class! Lots of you have asked for another story map so.... 

I have been super busy today writing a new text for your to learn. I have even drawn you a story map to go with it!!! 

If you want to listen to the story first- please follow the link below...

I would suggest learning the text over the next few days- reading the book, drawing the story map and making up actions for the text. I have made it as simple as possible!! Once you feel your child knows the text off by heart, get them to write the story on their own. Don't forget you capital letters, full stops and finger spaces!

If you want to send me a video, I would love to see your retelling of the text :)
